chiefs of staff, the obama administration will announce formally tomorrow that the ban on women in combat is over. they had been making some progress in this direction, recently opening up the special operations aviation command to female pilots, and last year opening up about 14,000 positions in the military that had been previously off limits to women. but this announcement could open up 230,000 new jobs to women over the course of the next year. the various service branches will make their own plans for how to do it. if there are individual specific jobs that they still want exempt for women, that they want exempt from this new policy, the service chiefs can ask for that. but that will not be the expectation. the priority, of course, is still military readiness and combat effectiveness above all. but they are making this move, starting tomorrow, to make serving equally recognized, equally. to clear the way for women in combat. joining us now is one of the women whose legal case on this issue may have helped push the military to this decision. she is captain zoe bedell. she is on

not clear that that camp is going to reach out to the obama administration, that that camp is interested in a peace offering even if the economy is in free fall. it might be convinced that its own survival is intrinsically linked with a conflict with the united states. so even if he's reaching out and he has an intended message of one, it's unclear if that message is going to be received. in the middle east the idea of winning and losing is a little different. there's a much longer historical perspective. the muslim brotherhood, for example, doesn't see this election by morsi or other muslim brotherhood gains as a victory. it's a step on the road to establishing a world as it existed before the collapse of the caliphate, before the disaster, as it sees it, of all the world war i agreements. so it's about winning battles as opposed to winning a decisive war that's going to have a decisive peace. >> richard, you're optimistic this might get through? >> i think i am -- >> i mean steve. >> i think richard is absolutely right. we don't know ultimately how they'll respond, and there

i'm different than the previous administration. i'm not president bush. a lot of people around the world still remember the united states even though there's been four years of a barack obama presidency for the wars in iraq and the wars in afghanistan and military interventions and the drone policy, and he was trying to say we can work peacefully. we have to build on the peacemakers, and i think that is a message that will be received by people in iran, will be received by certain communities in iran, but there is a big divide in iran. there's the qods force which is feel very empowered and very aggressive. if he's extend an olive branch i think there will be some parties in iran that will be taking it and other parties that will just be seeing this as some sort of trick because this administration has also been very tough on iran, particularly as far as sanctions are concerned. >> steve? first of all, do you think the message will get to the person it's intended for? >> i think there is. i think there's an audience of one with due respect to richard whom i adore. but i think ayato

, that you just talked about. the obama administration has sort of taken this tactic in the past, during the payroll tax cut fight, during the student loan fight, really circumventing congress and trying to build a ground swell of support among the people, to pressure congress to get what it wants to get done passed. so in this case, that is the stiffer gun law. so you're going to see vice president biden out today, holding that roundtable, talking about gun legislation. he'll be joined by his cabinet secretaries as well as a democratic senator, tim kaine, to really try to talk to the people about why he thinks this for gun legislation is a good idea. but, of course, as you just mapped out, there is a lot of opposition to this, particularly in states like virginia. so they're hoping to get moderates on their side, so that when this really does go to a fight, they will have the votes in the end. senior administration officials tell me, privately, they think that there is a lot of support for universal background checks and for limiting high-capacity magazines, but, of course, that ban on

pretty well for the obama administration in a lot of different areas. >> now, jamal, a good manager knows how to deal with his team. and you know the president's team well. he goes to different people to do different things. what is the key to joe biden's role and how it applies to the overall obama team and the obama administration? >> that's exactly right. i look at the president as the quarterback of the team and he's the hub and everybody else is the spokes on this wheel. jarrett is reaching out to other business ceos. and neighbors is dealing with congress. but i think vice president biden plays a very key role inside the administration. he understands how the town works. like michelle was saying he hugs people and grabs them by the shoulders and looks them in the eye, that sort of stuff. he's also a guy the president has an extraordinary amount of confidence in. he could go in any room and speak on behalf of the administration. he's actually carrying a message the president wants delivered. that's an invaluable resource for the white house. >> now, michelle, vice president biden spo

guns. that is a real palpable fear and that is something that can be addressed by the obama administration. if the president could assure gun owners that they are not going to take away their guns. >> people say it all the time. when the president says that, well, we don't believe that. especially since he has been so demonising for so long. but i still think. i have a number of friends, i have seen them post on facebook. the government will never come and take my guns. the administration will go further to reassure them. for some of them, it may slow down how many weapons they could buy but at the same time they would still have access to firearms for hunting and self defense. the divide between most gun owners and the nra leadership and the more active members of the nra is that something that they believe but only say in the selective environment is they want to have enough fire power to fight police and military forces. >> frank smyth thank you for joining me tonight. some more unmasking of the nr are a is next. tom sellek has been with the nra for years. is he a man of

. one is that i think we actually focus too much on obama as a person as opposed to obama the administration. and so what happens, certainly in black america, is that people look at this guy and they say, you know, we're really proud. he's under attack, whatever. we don't look at that there is an administration. we're not dealing with augustus caesar but with an administration. >> or moses. as such this administration as my colleagues point out will be responsive to pressure. within black america. we have to be self-critical. it wasn't that people were we luck tant. people like tavares smiley and cornell who raised criticisms, you can take issue with how they raised it, were demonized. people that started raising criticisms and pointing at the administration and saying this administration can and should go further were demonized. they weren't pointing to the administration but to the man. this is where i think there is great confusion. i don't even think the president views himself as sort of standing alone on some altar. i think he needs the pressure. in fact i think he wants

perspective politically. kerry served as president obama's mock debate partner during his re-election campaign. but he has pressured the administration at times urging the white house last year to speed up with the draul of u.s. troops from afghanistan. kerry was also influential in the administration's decision to intervene in libya. in case you forgot from his 2004 bid for the white house, he is one of the wealthiest members of the senate. he and wife teresa, heir to the heinz ketchup fortune are worth $180 million with a wide range of investments. in a letter to the state department legal adviser, kerry said he will divest any holdings that could be a conflict of interest within 90 days of being confirmed. he'll be introduced to day about the the current secretary hillary clinton. >>> today's appearance expected to take on a much different tone than the tough questioning she faced yesterday about the deadly attack against the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >> when you're in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on. number one. >> rail

find today is a motive for susan rice or hillary clinton or president obama, or any one of them in the administration is to mislead, to actively try to prevent false facts about what happened in benghazi. and no one has ever come close to suggesting any kind of motive. >> no, i think that is absolutely right. hillary clinton demonstrated what a professional she is by saying she absolutely takes responsibility. and with the review board's work, she has gone to sort of look through this question of what ought to be a direct reporting of crises up to the secretary level. but also what has not received as much attention, she is warning there are other facilities out there today. very true on the day the tragedy occurred. people died, ambassador stevens and three other great americans died in this conflict. and we today have under-resourced defenses for other facilities. and she said we need to fix this. and those members of the gop who were launching the attacks on her, some of them have been part of the process of trying to undermine diplomacy of the state department for years. and th

will be a huge part of his agenda, that in fact he might be the administration's leading voice on climate change. senator kerry's voice on this shows some of the mugs sell that president obama will put behind those words in the immigration speech while your viewers will remember that the last real climate change legislation in the senate was kerry, lieberman. and so he said that a jobs policy is an energy policy and as an example of what he'd do, he said he would press china to cut back on their emissions, which right now gives them an advantage over fuss manufacturing. >> let's go now to chuck hagel, nominee for secretary of defense. he'll appear before the senate armed services committee next thursday. hagel erode looks like it's full of potholes ahead. >> it is, but it's all theater. with senator schumer of new york coming up for him will, enough senators have come out for him and clear he will get confirmed. so this is a fight the president picked with congress and won. that gives him more political capital, a great place for the president to be. but this hearing is going to h
